Associazione EURATOM ENEA sulla FUSIONE 4 NODALIZATION - The version 5.0 has been developed to allow the model of several compartments connected according to a free topology defined by the user, so that all the compartments can be connected, through junctions, to all the other volumes. CONSEN v 5.0 This overcomes the limitation of the previous versions of the code in which a maximum of six volumes could be connected only to a "central" compartment. CONSEN 5 nodalization example
Associazione EURATOM ENEA sulla FUSIONE 5 TRITIUM - A simple model to evaluate tritium migration between the compartments has been implemented too in CONSEN 5.0. The tritium flow between two connected volumes is evaluated multiplying the tritium volumetric concentration in the compartment (assumed uniform only in the atmosphere region) and the volumetric flow rate evaluated by the existing models in CONSEN. ICE - A model to evaluate ice porosity during formation and its influence on density and thermal conductivity has been implemented. Some modification in the iterative algorithms for the ice thickness evaluation has been introduced. In CONSEN all the tritium is considered in HTO form diluted in the steam and in the atmosphere. It is treated,at the present, as a gas (it does not condense on cold surfaces).
